No, not all the good Pinoy guys are married...yet.   They're out there   if you know where to find them or if you're lucky enough to run into them.   To welcome the so-called wedding season, SPOT.ph lists 10 of the most eligible Pinoy bachelors.


illac-diaz-bachelor

1. ILLAC DIAZ

Unique selling point: This "good-looking do-gooder" is a former commercial model. Born with half-Italian features and a smile fit for toothpaste commercials, he now spends most of his time doing philanthropic work. A Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate, the 37-year old hunk is spearheading projects such as Design Against the Elements and Bottle School Run. He does this with the help of the My Shelter Foundation.

Pedigree details: Son of Italian-born art gallery owner Silvana Ancelloti-Diaz and sculptor Ramon Diaz. Illac is also the cousin of former actor and commercial model turned interior designer Robin da Roza, model Georgina Wilson, and model-actress Isabelle Daza. This means, of course, that he's the nephew of 1969 Miss Universe Gloria Diaz. (We just had to point that out.)

Where you might spot him: Head to the nearest public school or underprivileged area where he is sure to be hatching his newest project. You could also hang out at a coffee shop, where he might be meeting with volunteers.


miguel-syjuco-bachelro

2. MIGUEL SYJUCO

Unique selling point: He's a guy who chose to be writer rather than join politics. This 33-year-old Atenista pursued postgraduate studies at Columbia University and later worked as a copy editor at the Montreal Gazette in Canada. Then, in 2008, his then-unpublished novel, Ilustrado, won the Grand Prize for the Novel in English at the 2008 Palanca Awards. In November of the same year, he won the Man Asian Literary Prize for Ilustrado as well.

Pedigree details: His dad Antonio Syjuco, Jr. used to be head of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority. He was recently proclaimed as the congressman of Iloilo's second district, taking over wife Judy Jalbuena-Syjuco, who occupied the same position for three terms.

Where you might spot him: He's now based in Montreal, Canada with his girlfriend Edith Werbel. He would probably be at book signings and literary events.

    Oh by the way, is it now considered "eligible" even if the person has a boyfriend or girlfriend? or married for that matter? Hhhhm have we changed so drastically?

    ERRATUM: Even in this day and age where everyone shares information online, there are people like musician Franco Reyes who manage to keep their private lives, well, private. As it turns out, he is married. We thank divasoria (as well as Lauren and beetlejuice) for spotting our error. Our sincerest apologies to Franco and, er, Mrs. Reyes, we hope you understand why we were dying to include your gorgeous and talented husband in the list. Peace!

    Kailangan magpaka-cheap talaga sa comments mo? If you rants like that, write it in your own blog. I wonder why the sour graping? Bitter much?

    It said that spot missed coco martin which is so not qualified for the list.

    I guess GMA's kinda jejemon with their taste.

    Hello, That's why they're eligible, because they came from DBF, or De Buena Familia. They're good catch and are financially capable to raise a family. If they're masa they won't be in this list in the first place.

    But Derek's not even Pinoy. His father is British and his mom is Mexican.

    If I remember correctly, Derek Ramsey is not a gym guy. He said he gets his fitness only through sports.
